Ah…a mid-April Monday. What do you say we dedicate this madeleines issue to the visual and comedic arts. Okay, we will!
Enjoy, and leave a comment so we know you’re still breathing out there!
New Pastel Painting: Alaskan Malamute
Here’s a beautiful and interesting pastel by Janae Lehto (@janaelehto) of one of her sister’s Alaskan Malamutes. What makes it interesting is the progression she takes us through – from photograph to her artistic pastel stylings to recreate it. Thanks to Paul Steele (@paul_steele) for retweeting this so it hit our Twitter stream.
Here’s a tree silhouette photo in which the light takes center stage. As one commenter put it, “Mesmerizing.” Another great photographic work showcased by Bill Whitmer (RedGage) – @OregonArtGuy.
Our First Sunrise from Our Hotel
This shot of the sunrise from his room in the Aqua Palms Hotel, Honolulu, was posted on Instagram by Anthony Quintano (@AnthonyQuintano), Sr. Community Manager for @NBCNews. (Oh, BTW, Facebook just gobbled them up, didn’t they?).
Video of the Week
Our video of the week comes to us courtesy of funny guy Bill Zucker (@BillZucker). It’s actually a catchy tune, and the scary part is this was produced about two and a half years ago. Things have gotten worse since then for many social network-aholics.
